    I'm using the BlackBerry Passport. Is there a good app that can obtain approximate GPS coordinates of my phone/location?

    If I ever get lost while hiking I think it would be a good idea to text message my GPS coordinates to friends or law enforcement, so I might be easily located.

    Thanks!

    HelloGPS is a free BlackBerry World app/GPS testing tool that among it's feature is current Latitude/Longitude/Altitude from the GPS receiver.
    No need for a data or cell connection to run it, so great if you find yourself out in the boonies and need to figure out your location and direction.
    Also great to pull coordinates which are not shown on most normal GPS and Map apps.
    Check it out here:

    Or search HelloGPS in BlackBerry World app on your device.

    Just open the Compass on your Passport.

    There is a button at the bottom right to turn on Magnetic North. With it turned on it will show your coordinates.
